Summer Program in 2020

During the summer, we discovered that students were staying at home without much work and fun. For this reason, we created a summer program for our students. While our Saturday classes focused on academics, Summer Program 2020 focused on enrichment and fun classes including ballet, fitness, cooking, chess, debate, and more! Every weekday from 12 to 6, students were invited to learn from a passionate mentor in the field. The mentors teaching the classes were students from respected schools such as Harvard Westlake, Harvard, Stanford, WashU, and the University of Washington. With thirty hours of classes per week and a greatly diverse and interesting list of classes, we taught hundreds of students in the program to keep them active and interested! The program continued from June to August and culminated in an individual project such as an art piece, a journalism article, a presentation on American history, and more!
